Italy-based artist Daniele Papuli creates site-specific installations made of paper. The sculptural floor piece known as Cartoframma consists of over 10,000 strips of paper that curve and spiral out to create a magnificent rippling effect.
Despite being made entirely out of paper, the piece gives the illusion of a fibrous texture or liquid consistency. Papuli’s decision to work primarily with paper began in 1993 after trip to Berlin where he attended a workshop on the methods of manufacturing paper. Since then, the sculptor has gone on to utilize the delicate material, experimenting with its form and strength. Paper is, all at once, a difficult medium to work with, because of its fragility, and an inspiring one due to its flexibility and the ease with which one can manipulate it.
